ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Wednesday granted the Indian authorities’s request to permit prime Minister Narendra Modi’s plane to fly over Pakistani airspace on June 13.

Modi’s plane will now be able to overfly Pakistan and take a more direct path to Kyrgyzstan’s capital Bishkek.

top Minister Imran Khan and his Indian counterpart are each scheduled to attend a assembly of the Shanghai Cooperation enterprise (SCO) in Kyrgyzstan from June thirteen to fourteen.

Pakistan’s airspace alongside the japanese border with India is predicted to remain closed until June 14, in a recent extension, following the February 27 stand-off between the 2 arch-rival countries.

relations between the 2 nuclear-armed nations remained sour after the February 14 suicide assault in Indian-occupied Kashmir’s (IoK) Pulwama district killed at least forty Indian paramilitary infantrymen.
